What is tonsillitis?

Tonsillitis is a health condition that involves inflammation and swelling in the tonsils that are positioned in the back of the throat. Tonsils are a pair of lymph nodes that prevents the entry of harmful germs into the body. Tonsillitis is usually caused by bacterial infection or viruses such as rhinovirus, enterovirus, etc and this condition is more common in children than adults.

Tonsillitis has three different stages, which are classified by the symptoms and duration. Following are the stages of tonsillitis:

Acute- This is an early stage of tonsillitis where the symptoms are mild and usually lasts a week.

Recurrent- In this stage, patients suffer from multiple occurrences of tonsillitis in a year.

Chronic- Patients with chronic tonsillitis tend to have advanced symptoms and are likely to have an increased risk of infection, which lasts more than two weeks.

Tonsillectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure performed by an experienced ENT surgeon to remove the inflamed tonsils. This surgery helps the patient to get rid of the symptoms such as; difficulty in swallowing, sore throat, scratchy voice, etc.

Diagnosis

In Delhi, patients with tonsillitis can get the latest and advanced treatment at an affordable cost from Pristyn Care ENT specialists. Our doctors perform a throat examination to check for the presence of redness and swelling of tonsils. In the case of tonsillitis, your doctor may find white or yellow patches on the tonsils. In a few cases, your ear and nose can also be examined to evaluate the severity of the infection. To detect the underlying cause of tonsillitis, an ENT doctor could recommend some diagnostic tests.

Surgery

If you are suffering from acute tonsillitis, ENT doctors at Pristyn Care Delhi suggest medication therapy and lifestyle modifications. However, if tonsillitis fails to respond to these treatment plans or suffering from chronic tonsillitis, our doctors recommend undergoing tonsillectomy.

At Pristyn Care, Delhi, ENT doctors can remove the infected tonsils through a few methods like cauterization, ultrasonic vibration, cold knife dissection, etc. Before undergoing any of these surgical interventions, you will be sedated using general anesthesia to avoid the pain throughout the surgery. Once you fall asleep, infected tonsils will be removed using any of these methods. After completion of the surgery, you will be shifted to the recovery room, where all your vital signs like blood pressure, heartbeats, and respiratory rate will be monitored.

How to prepare for tonsillectomy surgery?

A few instructions an ENT surgeon will recommend during the consultation to increase the result of the tonsillectomy surgery:

  • Avoid eating after 10 P.M before the day of the surgery.
  • Plan your 2 weeks schedule beforehand as you will need proper rest post-surgery for better recovery.
  • Do not take any medication that is not advised by the doctor before or after tonsillectomy.
  • Follow the guidelines given by the doctor for eating and drinking prior to coming to the hospital. 

Are there any risks involved in tonsils removal surgery?

There are no major complications of tonsillectomy, but like any other surgeries there might be certain risks that are involved in the procedure:

  • Swelling- The swelling can occur in the soft palate (roof of the mouth) for a few hours after surgery which can be managed through medication.
  • Bleeding- This happens in exceptional cases, where patients can suffer from heavy bleeding during surgery.
  • Infection- In rare cases, patients can get infections that may need further medication.
  • Reaction to administered anesthesia- During surgery, the patient may feel minor discomforts like headache, nausea, or vomiting.

What can a patient expect during recovery duration?

Patients who have undergone tonsillectomy might feel a little discomfort in the following week, i.e., pain near the neck and ears region, fever, swelling, trouble swallowing, nausea, and vomiting. However, the surgeon will provide the medication to manage all the discomfort, including minor tenderness.

Some of the significant factors to keep in mind during the recovery period to promote healing: 

  • Follow a proper diet recommended by the surgeon, like foods that can be easily swallowed, and avoid spicy foods that may cause bleeding or pain at the surgical site.
  • Take proper rest for at least 2 weeks post-surgery while avoiding extreme physical activities. 
  • Keep your body hydrated after surgery for faster recovery.
  • Take prescribed medications only.

Is your child suffering from frequent tonsil infection/ tonsillitis?

Children who suffer from chronic or acute tonsillitis are often considered potential candidates for tonsillectomy to offer them permanent relief from the ailment. Tonsillectomy is a commonly performed procedure in children who experience recurring episodes of tonsillitis or have an unhealed infection. It is also done to treat enlarged tonsils, which may cause difficulty in breathing, sleep apnea, difficulty in sleeping, glue ear, problem in eating and swallowing, etc. You can find the best team of ENT doctors for tonsillectomy in Delhi and know more about tonsillectomy in children.

What happens in a consultation for tonsillectomy?

During a consultation for tonsillitis, a physical examination of the child is done. The tonsils are examined and their condition and size are determined first. Afterwards, the parents are asked some questions about the frequency of infections and tonsillitis, the symptoms, and any ongoing medication. Once a complete assessment of the situation is made, treatment options are discussed.

Book an appointment with the best ENT doctors in Delhi at Pristyn Care to learn more about your child's situation and treatment alternates. 

What will happen to my child during a tonsillectomy?

Tonsillectomy is a common procedure in children who suffer from chronic tonsillitis, infections, etc. The procedure does not take more than an hour and is done under the influence of general anesthesia. The surgery is done through the mouth and requires no stitches. The recovery process is not too long either. The healing process after the surgery takes about two weeks, and the child can get back to his normal life while following a few instructions from the doctor. 

What are the results of a tonsillectomy?

Future possibilities of tonsillitis are eliminated by a tonsillectomy. This implies that there would be no further instances of infections or any related symptoms. For a couple of weeks after the surgery, there might be an uncomfortable pain in the throat, but it can be managed by painkillers and medication. 

What are the alternatives to tonsillectomy?

In some cases, medication is prescribed to treat tonsillitis. Medicines like paracetamol, ibuprofen, or aspirin can be given, but these can only help by moderating the symptoms. Even though they might help reduce the symptoms, they are not commonly prescribed as they take a long time to show effect. Also, they are not effective in treating tonsillitis or infections themselves. 

Children's tonsils usually shrink as they grow up, and tonsillectomy is recommended by doctors after alternates like antibiotics, medication, and waiting for the tumors to shrink fail to show effect. 

As the procedure removes the tonsils, any future recurrences of infections or tonsillitis are eliminated. Tonsillectomy is the sure shot treatment for tonsillitis and heals the problem from its root. Pristyn Care offers best-in-class services and has the best team of ENT doctors at your service.
